If you were to ask yourself what one of the most important parts of your home is, what would you say? Many people cite the foundation, which is indeed important! However, in any home there is an equally important and protective element sitting above everything else: your roof. Without a well-functioning roof, you can expect issues from all of the elements that can literally rain down on your home!
If your home is a little older or the roof is older, you might be wondering when it’s time for a roof replacement. A roof replacement is something that you want to stay ahead of, since roof damages and leaks can cause more damages and expenses than just replacing the roof. If you are wondering about roof replacement, here are a few signs to watch out for that indicate the time is drawing close:
- Worn, balding or curling shingles. When your roof is starting to show its age, it will show balding, curling or shingles that are starting to look smoother. A new roof has lots of granules and is neat, tidy and flat.
- Missing sections of shingles. In areas with a lot of storms or high winds, a missing shingle or two can be replaced, but occasionally when enough shingles are missing, it’s better to do a roof replacement rather than several large patch jobs.
- Age. If your shingle roof is between 10-15 years old, it is time to start considering a roof replacement.
